Στο λίκνο της Δημοκρατίας, τα περιστέρια φορούν αντιασφυξιογόνες μάσκες

«Στο λίκνο της Δημοκρατίας, τα περιστέρια φορούν αντιασφυξιογόνες μάσκες», τραγουδάει ο Nick Cave στο νέο του κομμάτι, το οποίο διέρρευσε σήμερα στο διαδίκτυο με τίτλο «Lightning Bolts», οι στίχοι του οποίου έχουν σαφείς αναφορές στην κοινωνική έκρηξη της Ελλάδας, αλλά και τη γενικότερη κοινωνική κρίση που μας αφήνει «χαμένους». 
Και οι στίχοι: 
Τwo lightning bolts were delivered to my room They were gifts from Zeus I rock the bolts in a basinet of pine People ask me how I am I say I am all right I'm fine! I push the lightning bolt in a pram Till the sun goes down & it gets dark The girls from Jubilee Street hang out their windows And they wave & ask me how I am tonight I say I am good I'm all right! In Athens all the youths are crying from the gas I am by the hotel room working on a tan People come up and ask me who I am I say if you don't know Don't ask Zeus laughs but it's the gas He asks me how I am I say Zeus don't ask My lightning bolts are jolts of joy They are joy boys from Zeus I fed them porridge in their booster seats of knowledge And in the cradle of democracy the pigeons are wearing gas masks My lightning bolts play in the elevators They slide down the hotel banister And Zeus throws a gas canister And it spins around the pool As pigeons wearing respirators Steal the lightning bolts Zeus wants them back O my bolts of joy O my darling little boys They are lost to us And people They are never coming back At night I watch them sleep And cry years of tears And it's not the gas People ask me how we are We are I say mostly lost
